Trust Given but Cynically Destroyed! The Lie of "Progressives"!
In the election of 2008, many hailed and hoped the USA had turned a great corner… electing the first minority president (how cool is that)! Barack Obama was given great trust by the American people… he promised to honor that trust. Given the presidency and large majorities in Congress he and the Democrats immediately destroyed that trust in a fusillade of bad and oft failed “progressive” policies… onerous freedom and prosperity wrecking legislation that to accomplish, required strong arm tactics and backroom deals (the very same actions that had given the GOP the well deserved boot)! But sadly, they did not (hope’n) change anything, but only increased and multiplied the misdeeds of the Bush administration.
President Obama and his “progressive” allies have now lost the great American middle, who they won in ’06 and ’08. So now to win (like Nevada?), they must resort to chicanery. The “progressive” 9th Circuit court in California overturned the Arizona requirement that voters prove citizenship… calling it an “undue burden”. Their march toward the “Plantation Nation” is unabated by such silly impediments as freedom and the Constitution! The wave of election 2010, hopefully stunted much of their "progessive" plans, but there's still much damage that can be done.
The dirty (notso) secret is… “Progressives” are of the mind the (ordinary us) “little people” (who they claim to love) are stupid and dangerous… and must managed, controlled and supervised. For most of human history this mindset has prevailed among nobles and rulers. The great experiment of the USA these last 200+ years is the marvelous exception… and cannot be tolerated! All this IMHO puts the lie to the word “progressive”. As they are REGRESSIVE (hence the “quotes”)… the exact opposite of what they claim!
Their “Progressivism” (aka: Socialism) survives only on promises... once under its tyranny, the folks too late realize the delivery of these promises is a far different matter! All is really just a huge Ponzi pyramid scheme... those in charge at the top live LARGE... the "regular" folks not so good. Innovation and creativity is frustrated and oppressed with bureaucracy multiplied to strangulation levels... the purpose to maintain the sacred status quo! To do and maintain this, control of information, education and the media is essential, as "progressives" require an ignornant, demorlaized and passive population to maintain control (hence hate and attempt to destroy Fox News and other non-controlled media!).
Human vices (especially those of the flesh) and "alternative life styles" are encouraged and glorified. Traditional Judeo-Christian faith, morality and marriage (man/woman kind) are discouraged, ridiculed and marginalized… the main vehicle for this being the now state-controlled "arts", entertainment and education industries (NPR etc.). Media "stars" are anointed and given conditional top tier pyramid status, based on their adherence to the "party line" (as the state has now replaced God, the rulers are often given godlike admiration by the selected media). Opposition media if allowed at all, is viciously attacked using such thuggish Orwellian named tactics as “fairness doctrine” “diversity” and now, “net neutrality”.
Those at the top of the pyramid continually agitate those below to be in constant conflict with each other... using all things cultural and ethnic to maintain the strife (so we don’t see that our common struggle is against these top pyramid "Bernie Madoff" types). Those of us among the "lessers" are fortunate if we can maintain a rationed subsistence... long lines for most everything among us “common” folk are the SOCIALIST “PROGRESSIVE” REALITY! (Note the recent toilet paper shortage in Cuba). However, to "comfort" us and assuage our misery we have the option of blaming our misfortune on the various “enemies of the day”! This could be big corporations, insurance companies, or even Fox News... but NEVER government!
One wonders why if "Progressivism" (Socialism) is so wonderful, why don’t Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela have an illegal immigrant problem? Seems to me they should have to build walls to keep people out! But their walls are designed to keep the people in! It’s amazing and oh so sad in America today, how many of our fellow citizens buy the PROMISE (of something for nothing) and not the REALITY (the aforementioned “rationed subsistence”) of "Progessive" Socialism! Go figure? Convinced that the (never delivered) promised good life of is “just around the corner” many become willing slaves to the oppressive Nanny state, marching into HELL with a smile on their face!!! As of now thankfully, many (and hopefully soon most) Americans are not cooperating, and resisting! God save us and bless the USA!
